Simians Of Swing Tickets In Hitchin, United Kingdom
Saturday, November 25th, 2017
7:45 PM
74 Whinbush Road, Hitchin, United Kingdom
JazzUp presents... SIMIANS OF SWING!

The Simians of Swing are no ordinary jazz group; they are story tellers in the great comic book tradition. Each number on their album is a soundtrack to a hero or villain; some of the characters are good, most are bad but all are legends with tales of revenge, tragedy and romance. Set in a post-apocalyptic world the Simians narrate their stories through the medium of jazz.

Line Up:
Sara Dowling - vocals
Andy Davies - trumpet
Lorenzo Bassignani - bass
Sam Leak - piano
Carl Orr - guitar
Saleem Raman - drums
